ALLAY chair, by Daniel Schofield

Based on a deep-rooted sense of minimalism and emphasis on long lasting design, Daniel Schofield designed the ALLAY for MOR, a chair with a calming and pleasing presence.

“I wanted to create a chair that had a sense of familiarity, and for people to feel comfortable with it quickly. Something that has a quiet confidence and a soothing presence. To achieve this I set out to design the archetypal lounge chair, but reduce it down to as few lines as possible.- Daniel Schofield

This unique piece, available in ash or oak, was introduced in a private event at our showroom, at Lxfactory, in Lisbon, on the 25th of November with the presence of some of our designers and business partners.

Openhouse Issue 14

MOR Design was featured for the first time on Openhouse Magazine Issue 14, with the DOME lamp, designed by Pedro Sottomayor.

The DOME is a minimal marble lamp whose design aims to underline the beauty and elegance of the raw material. It is shaped like a very slim dome, carved into existence from a single block of marble.

Since each marble block is unique, each lamp appearance may vary from hundreds of possible natural designs and colours. For this reason, this powerful lamp easily stands out when turned off.
